Guidelines for Making Prayer Requests and Praises at BCBC

Here are a few guidelines to help you make prayer and praise requests.

Most importantly, you do not have to be BCBC members to request prayer or be prayed for. Anybody who wants to pray with us is welcome.

Email requests to the church

You may email our church secretary, Mrs. Linda Stewart at linda@BentCreekBaptist.org. Let us know the email addresses of your family and friends who will be the subject of your prayer or praise.

If there is no email account, let Linda know your snail mail address. We will mail a copy of the prayer request to you. On the other hand, tell Linda if for any reason you do not want to have the prayer letter sent.

We invite you to keep everyone updated on your prayer requests and God’s answers to your prayers through Sunday school leaders or by emailing Linda directly.

Post prayers and praise directly on the BCBC website.

On the first page of the BCBC website, scroll to the bottom and click “Read more.” Then click “Prayer Requests Form Page,” and follow the directions to make the request. Check back daily to see how many people have prayed.

Be persistent in your prayers. If needed, request again, like the parable of the persistent widow to the unbelieving judge.

In a certain town there was a judge who neither feared God nor cared what people thought. And there was a widow in that town who kept coming to him with the plea, “Grant me justice against my adversary.”

For some time he refused. But finally he said to himself, “Even though I don’t fear God or care what people think, yet because this widow keeps bothering me, I will see that she gets justice, so that she won’t eventually come and attack me!” (Luke 18:1-8)

As for the confidentiality issue, ask permission from the person being prayed for to include their name in the prayer or praise request.

Trust our good God that he will answer our prayers in His best ways.

Let’s praise God together for His answers to our prayers.
